Restoring Hope - Fashion Show Gala 2019

Restoring Hope - Fashion Show Gala 2019

Announcing the Women of the World 9th Annual Fashion Show Gala on 6 March starting at 5:30pm at The Falls Event Venue in Trolley Square in downtown Salt Lake City. Every year, the Fashion show is an opportunity to highlight something displaced women can teach us. Last year we highlighted  the harms of barriers and the benefits of community, this year we move with momentum forward to restore hope. A hope--we are reminded--that is also the object of a journey we take together. The hope we are restoring is at once audacious and an incentive to act.

Stepping Up: Women of the World's 4th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser

Women of the World celebrates the traditions of our new neighbors, we take pride in our place in the blend of community and culture, and we raise our voices to advocate on behalf of so many still in the process of escaping war and genocide. So it is our honor to invite you to our Celebration of Stepping Up: Women of the World's 4th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser.

 

WHEN: Wednesday, 2 March 2016. Mingling starting at 5:30 p.m., Program to begin at 6:00 p.m.

DONATIONS: We have recently received a very generous matching grant from the Semnani Foundation that will double any money you are willing to give to our tax-exempt organization. 

The Women of the World Fashion Show features our new refugee neighbors STEPPING UP in their cultural garb. These women are counting on our friendship and humanity after fleeing violence in the neighborhoods of their birth. Their courage and request for grace encourages us to STEP UP with our hearts open to our shared hopes and dreams as women, mothers, and Utahns.
Fashion is about more than clothing, it is about rituals and history. International women’s day is about more than just women, it is about family and home in all its myriad forms. And your attendance is more than just a thing to do, it is about STEPPING UP -- in front of the crowd -- and standing for what you believe in, the ideal that makes America great, that we are ALL endowed with the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

International Women's Day is a holiday celebrating the achievements of women, a celebration of their intelligence, their strengths, courage, and the beauty of women.
